(PALS) - Certified Doula
Hi there, I am so excited that you've come to get to know a little bit about me and my services! I'm Kelly Hickman, your Birth & Postpartum Doula, Birth Photographer and Sound Bath Practitioner. The core foundation of my practice is my passion and commitment to offering meaningful support to each of my clients on their journey into parenthood.
I create an environment that promotes healing and bonding between parents, baby and loved ones. I support my clients during labor and birth by making suggestions for labor progression, and assisting with emotional, physical, and informational needs. Striving to support communication between my clients and their health care providers. I relieve pressure from partners, family members and loved ones to meet my clients needs during labor, birth and postpartum. As an expert in a variety of birth and parenting philosophies, I encourage my client's right to choose what is best for their family.
Something that sets me apart from all other doulas in the Pacific Northwest is my offering of the modality, Birthing With Sound. Birthing With Sound incorporates crystal singing bowls, guided vocal toning, meditation, breath work, and gentle movements that provide many wonderful benefits for the prenatal, birth and postpartum trimesters. To learn more about the many wonderful benefits of Birthing With Sound, I invite you to visit my Birthing With Sound page.
In addition to playing my bowls for my birth clients, I also find an incredible amount of joy in playing them for my family, friends and community. I love that I am able to bring a sense of peace, clarity and relaxation to those I play for. One of my most favorite places to play them is in the forest while the birds are chirping, the trees are dancing in the breeze, and the sun rays are shining down on everyone... such magical moments that I am so blessed to witness.
